Looks like a piece of junk. I hate the look of the fenders on those new Chevys. Will never buy a GM product.

ha ya it actualy does have a front drive shaft.... brand new front differntial to top it off too... my dad talked to the guy today while i was at home stuck... "DOUBLE ROOT CANAL" gotta lay off the dippin... but he actualy said he takes the dang thing to the pits and threw some local trails he just always keeps it clean so it doesnt ruin his paint/make his suspension wear out... hes bringing me and my dad some videos of the thing in the pits having a tow off against some dodge cant wait to get them videos i guess he definitaly didnt put his money in it for no reason... and its not just a very large grocery getter anymore ha

thanks for reading, rank over.

i agree and disagee its a cool truck i think if hes going to use it for wheeling then its alright but if its a show car forget that and i was wondering did he install all this or HAVE SOMEONE do it?

No, I won't buy GM because they are a piece of junk. Every GM vehicle that anyone in my family has ever own has been a big piece. Examples, dad had a brand new Buick. You couldn't keep oil in it. It had that self changing oil system where it leaks it out all over the ground. Grandpa had a Sonoma. It had a V6, leaked oil bad, got 12 MPG with the small V6 (why?), and it started to rust out with 50,000 miles on it (he kept it in the garage.)

The truck is nice, not sure I would buy that one, but if I had the coin to buy a 08 Duramax Fully loaded 4wd, I would. I like the new body styles and they finally redid the interior.

I still like my Fords though

If Fords suck, then Chevy's must swallow right?

My next truck is either a F-150 or a Colorado. Only buying one brand is ridiculous, I'll buy whatever suites my needs the best.

I don't like the fenders on the new chevy trucks, also both ends of the front bumper are way too big. especially looks stupid when they're chrome.
